How will the UMaine and UMM communities be notified if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 on the campuses?
UMaine and UMM students, staff and faculty who have been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical provider in relation to coronavirus are asked to voluntarily self-report by using the online form or calling the information line, 207.581.2681. The information will be routed to the university’s COVID-19 Response Team.
Currently, an individual who is being tested for COVID-19 waits up to 72 hours for results. The university, under CDC guidance, will ask the individual to stay out of the workplace, classroom and lab, and self-quarantine until test results are available. Students living on campus will be directed to one of the designated rooms set aside for this purpose.
If the results are positive for COVID-19, your medical provider or UMaine and UMM will notify the Maine Center for Disease Control. The positive individual will be asked to self-isolate for 10 days. Students living on campus will be asked to self-isolate at one of the on-campus rooms designated for this purpose.
